Our most popular event returns—an annual opportunity for members to fish in our three-acre lake!
As the museum is closing and everyone else is going home, stick around to enjoy an evening of fishing, fellowship, and picnicking in the gardens. Additional activities include visiting the Petting Zoo (open extended hours) and playing volleyball with new friends.
Spend the night camped out in a field next to the Botanical Gardens. Clean restrooms and showers will be available. On Sunday morning we’ll finish up with a special devotional service led by one of AiG’s popular speakers.
